The Role of Memory in the Perception of the Screen Image
Poznin V.F.
Abstract
The article investigates one of the aspects of psychology of art, namely, the role of different types of human memory — sensory, long-time, short-time — in the forming of an artistic image in the perception of an audiovisual entity. The audience’s perception of such specific cinematic methods as pan shot and dolly shot, as well as different types of parallel, associative and distance montage rests on the peculiarities of our short-time and long-time memory. On the other hand, the complex polyphonic combination of various visual chronotopes in modern films is based on the imitation of memory typical for our dreams.

Classic and Hellenistic Greece
Pondopulo G.K.
Abstract
The article is devoted to the role of the classic heritage in the formation of the culture of the Early Modern Period. Opening the series of articles «On the Crossroads of European Culture», the present publication investigates the influence made by the Classic Greek cultural archetype and Hellenistic tradition on the formation of modern philosophy of culture. Their impact was ambivalent because of the fact that the archetype (Logos) was based on reason and the interest for the logical constructing of cosmic models while the cultural tradition was grounded on the interest of studying nature as the basis of universal and human existence and the search for the best way to a happy life independent of the will of gods. And that gave an anthropological shade to the whole culturological process.
